Wildcat Fashion resurfaces

Email

ETOBICOKE, Ontario - The stakes-placed 3-year-old Wildcat Fashion returns from a five-month absence in Friday's Woodbine feature, a first-level allowance for Ontario-sired horses going six furlongs.

Wildcat Fashion, trained by Josie Carroll for Vinery Stable, won his maiden second time out going six furlongs in July. In his first attempt against winners, Sept. 1, he wound up fourth in the Simcoe, a seven-furlong stakes for graduates of local yearling sales.

Wildcat Fashion dropped his next start by just a head to Simcoe winner Mean Green in the restricted Bull Page Stakes. He earned a 73 Beyer Speed Figure in that six-furlong sprint. He subsequently finished a distant second to Shut It Down in the seven-furlong Frost King, another Ontario-sired stakes.

Wildcat Fashion capped off his 2-year-old campaign in the 1 1/16-mile Kingarvie Stakes, dueling up front before fading to third behind Parabola and Mean Green.

Luvyoutothemoon should be dangerous off his runner-up placing in a five-furlong Ontario-sired allowance. After breaking on top, he assumed a three-wide stalking position over an inside-biased track and finished a length back as the favorite.

The 4-year-old Luvyoutothemoon, who has missed the board only once in seven starts, breezed a quick half-mile in 47.20 seconds last Saturday. Justin Stein will get a leg up from trainer Sam DiPasquale.

Rimouski ran prominently in the two path to end up third behind Luvyoutothemoon on April 17. He won his debut at 2 against $25,000 maidens, and got the winter off after running fifth in an allowance last November.

Sprint Master ran third in the fall in his first two outings, and is making his first start since his maiden triumph Nov. 29.

Great It Tiz's lone victory in 12 tries last year came off a long layoff in his season opener in May, so he can obviously acquit himself well while fresh.

Clarkstoncharm began to come around at the end of his 2008 campaign, when he was narrowly beaten in a six-furlong maiden special. He graduated with authority in his season opener, for which he was awarded a 71 Beyer.

Bold Finale has 1 second and 5 third-place finishes to his credit from 15 starts at this condition. He checked in fourth behind Luvyoutothemoon and Rimouski in his first start of the year.
